    – This article based it on how Jesus guides us and how he doesn’t even see’s us but he feels us as how we feel Him.(as a symbol)
    – Jesus guides us to a path where he wants us to be in.
    – Our connection is based on the same idea because we had total silence but the disciples knew that it was Him.

    A)They talked about Jesus in a way telling us that whatever Jesus did when he was in earth is something that we should cherish and do frequently. I say this because God sent Jesus for a reason and the reason is to help us 1. Be a live 2. To be closer to God.
    b)The symbols talk about both of them in a way that Jesus is God but flesh so the symbols that they give are from both of them.
    C)The connection to the symbols of Jesus and God is that we have to use them for the best and that we should use it to have a better life in this world.

    1) The article talks about Jesus in a symbolic way, for example they used the words the “teacher of my youth”. And they described him with characteristics of a humble person.

    2) The symbols were used correctly in describing God. Jesus was pictured when they talked about him being a leader.

    3) Jesus is also like us understanding Symbols, because Jesus is just like a symbol he can mean many things, like when people say the word God there are many meanings like Savior, Leader and etc.

  7. Aldrich lim says:

    It talks about Jesus by showing us the various symbols used by people to describe Jesus in the bible. It shows what people call him over the years in the bible like the shepherd the rock the judge etc. the symbols used do describe God the shepherd because he leads us to salvation the shield because he protects us. Jesus is in all of these because like what Cher said Jesus is Gods in the flesh. Jesus is the symbol of Gods love sent by God to us.

    . It talks about Jesus here because it says that it is Jesus that represents God and its only through Jesus that they could get to the Father. Jesus also reveals God in stories and the stories always ends when God finds them back to Him. Jesus also shows God is caring since it’s showed in the feeding of the 5000 that God is nourishing.

    That article talked about in a way that he is the scroll of god sending word to everyone
    Yes the symbols are yet a proper way to talk about god. Jesus is the representation of God
    Our connection is that the symbols are images that speak of its self

    The feeding of the five thousand reveals a God who nourishes us in the desert places of life. His handling of the situation of the woman taken in adultery points to a God of forgiveness and not of judgment and vengeance. He sits down and eats with sinners, tax collectors, prostitutes and shows a God who includes all, especially the poor and marginalised. A very significant symbol in His life was when he washed the feet of his disciples at the Last Supper. He was not the one to Lord it over people. He was the ‘servant leader’ who called His disciples to follow and do as he had done.

    A. In the given article, the author spoke of Jesus as the bridge to our Lord. He will send messages to us on how to become one with God. Jesus is the one we speak to whom before The Lord.

    B. I believe so the symbols work quite effectively. This is because I were able to easily receive the overall message of this certain article . Again as I’ve said earlier Jesus acted as some kind of bridge between man and God.

    C. Like God, Jesus too used symbols to communicate with us. For each symbol of course represent something different for us. We are able interpret new meaning and life to each symbols given to
    us by God.

    c. What is the connection between our understanding of symbol and Jesus Christ?
    Jesus uses symbols to communicate with us because it makes it easier for everyone to understand and because humans have used symbols ever since we started to record things.

    – It talked about Jesus being the Way to God; it also showed that he is a Gid who does not always get his way by “enslaving” us all, but he is a God who is “down to earth” with us all. In other words, he understands all our problems and cares for us and develops a close personal relationship with us all
    – Yes, it does. They describe God in many ways metaphorically and symbolically. They describe God’s actions and Himself symbolically not literally. Through symbols, His true presence is shown through these.. Jesus enters the picture in the way that he is the symbol of God, Sacrament of God. He is His representation to the human race. Jesus is God in the flesh because He was sent down by God.
    – The connection is based on the idea that Jesus is the Symbol of God and through these other symbols, we will better yet understand His Word. And also, symbols best describe the true presence of God or Jesus Christ

  28. Anonymous says:

    1) This article shows that jesus is not only a generous nd miraculous God But, He is also an icon/representation of God through his words and actions.
    2) I would say that the symbols that were used were very correct Through parables, stories, miracles and etc. Jesus enters here as the narrator of the parables that symbolizes God, and through him we see how God is actually one who wishes the best for his people.
    3) The connection with understanding symbols and and jesus christ is that jesus christ “IS” the symbol for God. To Understand the true meaning of symbols is the only way we can understand the message jesus (as a symbol) wishes to relat to us

  31. Cristoff Bata
    A. It said that Jesus was the symbol of hope and God to all of us.

    B. Yes, because from all text talks about God being the light of all of us. In the text, it speaks of him being able to teach us. Let us learn from what we have done wrong. Jesus was shown as the symbol of everything that God wants us to know he is the symbol of everything.

    C. Jesus was the one who guided us into believing in the truth the one who taught us. Like symbols that teach us things we need to know. Jesus is light the symbol of faith for all of us. He is the symbol of everything we know about God.
